    Summary

    This is about the aftermath of The Six Thatchers. I think many of you will find it surprisingly non-angsty...but I think you will end up understanding why, and what I am trying to say about what Moftiss are doing with their central character--and somewhat of what I see in some secondary characters.

    It's got a touch of implicit Mystrade, because. Just because. It's got poetry, and is named after poetry: Another lovely Gerard Manley Hopkins piece. For a change I will presume to educate you rather than just throw this crap at you: a windhover is a common folk name for a common kestrel--a very small falcon that can ride the wind, seeming to stand still in the sky as it waits for prey--or ducking and dodging and finding a new line of search with agile ease, surfing the currents. It's so small and light and so skilled in its glide that it doesn't need to circle in those huge hoops other raptors incise on the heavens, but determines its own place on the breast of the wind, steady and firm, riding the gusts effortlessly--then, seeing prey, it plummets in a lancing dive earthward. Windhover--a gorgeous word for a gorgeous bird.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A lovely Lestrade-centric story following S4E1. Great dialogue and excellent character study of both Lestrade and Sherlock. Plus a touch of established Mystrade.

    Summary

    It seemed that Lestrade's salt-and-pepper hair grew in the same on his face as it did on his head. His beard was bristly, patchy, viscerally appealing in a way that had little to do with aesthetics and more to do with masculine sensuality. Mycroft was stood rapt, conjuring up the rough brush of the beard against his lips without having moved an inch. His apprehension dropped away, lost behind a painful stab of want.

     

    Christmas, when he and Lestrade had both been strong-armed into growing beards for a cause, proved to be the turning point for the whole desperate, shattering, uncomfortable scenario.
